The St Davids Pollinator Trail is a community wide project coordinated by The Bug Farm, with three main aims:
- Raise awareness about the importance of insect pollinators and to inspire people to preserve existing, or create new, pollinator habitat.
- Encourage visitors (and locals) to explore the wonderful businesses and beautiful countryside across the St Davids peninsula
- Link conservation with creativity by exhibiting a range of Welsh artwork along the Pollinator Trail
The St Davids Pollinator Trail is actually made up of two trails. The City Trail takes in a selection of local businesses and heritage sites within the city centre while the Explorer Trail stretches further across the St Davids peninsula and includes Whitesands Beach, Ramsey Island, cafes, accommodation providers, gardens and of course us, The Bug Farm. If you would like to take part in The Pollinator Trail you can collect a spotter guide and map from the The Bug Farm or download one from their website – please see link below.
The new and exciting St Davids Pollinator Trail will launch in August 2018, giving you a new way to explore St Davids! Collect a spotter guide and map from The Bug Farm or download one here and take part in either the ‘City’ and/or ‘Explorer’ Trail around St Davids. Both trails will take you on a pollinator treasure hunt! At each station, look out for an area of pollinator habitat, see if you can spot a particular pollinator and take a moment to enjoy a little bit of Welsh art too. Answer all the Bug Brain Teasers from each site and you can be entered into our prize draw!
The prize draw is an annual event and will be drawn on the 1st December. There are a range of prizes including donations from the sites on the Pollinator Trail. Take the time to bring your completed spotter guide back to The Bug Farm and you could be the one winning your own St Davids experience!
